What if traditional boundaries of art didn’t matter? I’m exploring the lines between photography, collage, and printmaking; between hands-on and technology. I call it digital collage. Join me: share your thoughts, stay in touch!

Show: Layered Stories at Blakely Hall

Detail from "can summon fire" digital collage by Liz Ruest Have you wondered about all the layers I’m using in my pieces. Come peek at a few of them this summer. I’ve been invited to show my art at artEAST‘s satellite venue, Blakely Hall. Perfect for larger works, it gives me the chance to really fill some wall space.

I’ll be showing 6 of my recent pieces as 24″x24″ aluminum prints, along with 12″x18″ photographs that were used as layers in each piece. To round off this ensemble, each piece will also be shown with its base handmade collage, 8″x8″ square.

Since it’s quite a large room, I’m teaming up with another collage artist, Anne La Fever. We come at collage from opposite directions: she’s traditional, I’m all modern tech; but we share a warm palette and I love the dark humor that surfaces in her pieces. See a taste of her work and the show statement here.

  • Show opens July 9 at Blakely Hall, 2550 NE Park Drive, Issaquah, WA
  • Reception and artist talk July 23
  • Show is up through September 8
